Battery for an American Austin

Hope there are some other Bantam owners here who can tell you what to use.  If you are restricted by size that's the best way to search rather than asking for one that fits an American Austin (Bantam).  That's probably not in their computer system.

A good lawn tractor battery should do the trick.  Most 6v motorcycle batteries are quite small as bikes with 6 volt electrics typically had kick starters.

The battery is 6 Volt  measures 7 x 7 x 9 deep.  There has to be hundreds of Austin Bantam cars mfg between 1930 and 1941 out there. What are they doing ??

The original Battery and the Battery we used to get from interstate was a 17HF that will help you get the right size.  

https://www.batterycentralmall.com/Batteries/TurboStart/Script/17HF.html    Apparently the days of going to a battery place and picking one up are gone.  MG uses two of theses in there cars so I am hoping someone continues to make one.

Good Luck
